My Sunday excursion included 20 bodies of water of which majority open,
some still frozen and a total of 50 species. Those waters that were open
were FULL of geese, gulls and ducks.

Herring as far as I could tell

standing on the ice-lone Greater White-fronted Goose

ducks including two Red-breasted Merganser
